Dr. Peter Sadow answered:

Is it common to get a diagnoses of stage four Gastric/GI Cancer without the primary source of the cancer confirmed? A tumor was confirmed on the liver

It does happen

Metastasis
Many tumors, especially without noticeable symptoms, are diagnosed following metastasis. Depending upon how the tumor appears under the microscope, a pathologist can often point out precisely where it came from, or, usually, a likely region. From there, it is a group effort, often involving pathologists, radiologists, and, in this case a gastroenterologist or general surgeon.

Dr. Jonathan Tay answered:

How long can you live with gastric cancer in 4th stage, if it has spread to liver, lungs, and pancreas?

Not long

Gall_bladder
The prognosis is very poor, however life expectancy is ver hard for docs to predict. Life span will depend on responsiveness to treatment and performance status of the patient, but with disease like you describe, I would e pect 6 months or less.

Gastric pain in pit stomach flatulence stool is foamy&hapns often.did chemotherapy&radiation 4 cervix cancer in January.plz help?

Malabsorption.

Malabsorption_syndrome
Flatulence and foamy stool means you are not absorbing fats well. This could be due to radiation or chemotherapy effects on your bowels or pancreas. Tell your doctor, especially about your foamy stools. Avoiding fat (dairy, fried food, cheese, oils) may help these symptoms. There are medications that can help as well. This will probably get better over time as you heal from treatment!

Left lower stomach pain gastric band removal 4 months ago blood test all good but orange mucus in every stool concerned !! Could this be cancer?

Psible but stil rare

Feces
Unclear what the orange mucus is. Blood will sometimes appear orange in stool Hemorrhoids, not cancer, would be the most comon cause of blood in the stools but this usually is bright red. You should have an MD test for blood in the stool. If negative, u can look for other causes (?diet) If positive, you will need a colonoscopy to rule out diverticulosis, polyp or less likely a cancer.

4 mths ago cant take in deep breath. Took breathing test, doc says results better than normal. I'm 30, exsmoker No cancer. Can gastric gas cause it?

If very gas-bloated

Open-uri20120818-8771-1ij3wjf
A person who "can't take a deep breath" (which may mean different things to different people) can write down his daily symptoms on a big calendar, and get rechecked by his primary care doctor. A pulmonologist, an allergy/asthma specialist, and a cardiologist can help. A rheumatologist and an orthopedic doctor can help if there a problem with the ribs, cartilage, spine, or muscles is suspected.

Dr. Mark Kuhnke answered:

Can eating kimchi cause gastric cancer?

YES IN HIGH DOSES

Stomach_cancer
If you have a steady diet of fermented foods, such as kimchi, there have been studies which show a relationship to gastric cancer. But , if you eat a balanced, diverse diet with occasional intake of kimchi or other fermented foods, you won't take on much risk. Remember, the dose makes the poison. So, indulge in moderation, and enjoy. Good luck.
